Driving lessons – the road to freedom

Most people who visit this page will do so after deciding they would like to drive a car. So, most of this section is about how to get a full driving licence to drive independently. Before you start to drive on public roads to take driving lessons, you need to get a Provisional Licence. However, on private land you do not need a licence to drive. For instance, you can learn the Cockpit Drill, Clutch Control and Moving Off and Stopping on private land. Obviously, you gain real experience on public roads.
